    Southwest face from Alpine trailhead  Sucess!

    I had an evening commitment, so vanman and I got a 5 am start, and in just under 12 hours climbed S Thunder and Bighorn Peak. The mountain was still snowy even on south aspects above ~9500' and we hardly had to walk on any talus. South Thunder was a very nice snow climb, and has some of the best views in the Wasatch. We had some decent glissading too. There was a mountain goat on the summit as we approached.

    Went up and down South Thunder in an afternoon on Easter Sunday 2008. Started from Alpine and encountered excellent snow conditions, though I got roasted by the sun all afternoon. Did the ~11 mile round trip solo in just over six hours.

    Through Bells  Sucess!

    Climbed with Steve Bohman. We had a great day, although it was very windy on top. We decided to go down the Alpine side, which did not seem any faster and it was very hot and dry on that side. (See trip report)

    Beatout Hike  Sucess!

    My last summit of the day during a long traverse on the Alpine Ridge. I was pretty tired by the time I made it to the top of South Thunder Mountain. The descent down Bells Canyon took longer than expected due to route finding.

    South Thunder  Sucess!

    The ridge from North Thunder to South Thunder offered some fun climbing. Hiked with Grizz and Asher as our second peak of our trip around the Quad.


    hiker100 - Jun 24, 2007 2:02 am Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2007


    Late snow storm dropped 2 feet of snow and we couldn't pass it up. Hiked up Friday night to Lake Hardy, camped above lake hardy about 400' and headed up to South Thunder the next morning. Lake hardy was completely frozen...
